Nurse charged in connection with killing mother-of-two Christie McHugh in collision
A nurse has been charged in connection with a hit and run that killed a mother-of-two in Barnet.
Christie McHugh, 33, was flung from the bonnet of a car into a Belisha beacon at a zebra crossing in East Barnet Road on March 4.
Mrs McHugh, who was a personal assistant at Luxx Light Technology in High Street, High Barnet, was pronounced dead at the scene. A post-mortem showed she died of head injuries.
She had been involved in a dispute with another woman driver before the incident.
The driver failed to stop at the scene but police later arrested a woman at an address in Barnet.
Ophelia Okai-Koi, 51, of Galdana Avenue, Barnet, was charged yesterday with causing death by dangerous driving.
She has been bailed to appear at Hendon Magistrate’s Court on November 13.
